Pomoriany

In Pomoriany we found the cemetery located on the outskirts of town on a substantial hill. We were told both that there was 1 stone remaining and that there were 4 remaining. We found 1 but did not look extensively for the others. We did see very serious erosion of the cemetery said to have been caused by the extraction of sand for use in the construction or renovation of the local school. We saw bones that appeared to be human in the washed out area. If sand was actually removed from this particular spot, then it is difficult to see how that action could be construed as anything other than deliberate desecration of the cemetery since the cemetery occupies only a small part of a much larger hill that presumably could have served as a source of the sand.
